“Home of the Tacky Ashtray!”

Located on historic River Rd, adjacent to the Mississippi River, the Rivershack has been described as a cross between a neighborhood tavern, a live music club, a sports bar and a small town restaurant. Characterized as New Orleans’ most unusual bar, is known to have been at various times a grocery store, a bar, a restaurant, a package liquor store, and a pharmacy. The “Shack” was thrust into the national spotlight when old asbestos shingles were removed from the sides of the 100 year-old building. Underneath, miraculously preserved for over half of a a century, were large, vibrantly colored, hand-painted advertisements from the 1940's – in virtual mint condition! The Rivershack Tavern is also the home of the Tacky Ashtray. The Rivershack’s collection really grew when drinks were traded for ashtrays brought in by customers. Don't forget to bring in YOUR tacky ashtray – we’ll trade you for the drink of our choice! The tackiness of your ashtray will determine the value of the beverage. Featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives!

This place is quirky, and I like that! They've got alligator sausage and po boys and stuff, but it's also a good place for a drink, dancing and live music!

It wasn't very busy the night we went; football was playing, no live band. The food was quite average but the service and atmosphere was nice.
I'd go again, as it;s out of the city and a little different.
